The end is nigh for Gordon Brown.
I predict he will have resigned by tomorrow evening. With suggestions that more resignations are to follow that of James Purnell there is surely no way that the Prime Minister can regain the momentum or authority needed to remain in office.
If a new spate of resignations do not force his hand tomorrow the council election results, a round of vicious Sunday paper headlines and the European vote count will mean his position becomes irrecoverable.
Alea iacta est.
